Teams that have won the SC- From most Northern to most Southern

I put this together because I was curious of how much variation there was geographically of where the Stanley Cup has been won in its 100+ year history.

Latitudes of Stanley Cup winning cities

1) Edmonton, AB- 53
2) Calgary, AB- 51
3) Winnipeg, MB*- 49
4) Vancouver, BC*- 49
5) Victoria, BC- 48
6) Seattle, WA*- 47
7) Quebec City, PQ*- 46
8) Montreal, PQ- 45
9) Ottawa, ON*- 44
10) Toronto, ON- 43
11) Boston, MA- 42
12) Detroit, MI- 42
13) Chicago, IL- 41
14) New York NY- 40
15) East Rutherford, NJ- 40
16) Pittsburgh, PA- 40
17) Philadelphia, PA- 39
18) Denver, CO- 38
19) Dallas, TX- 32

*Pre-NHL Stanley Cup Victory

That's right, only one team south of the Mason-Dixon line has ever captured the Cup.

Knew I'd forget someone. Gonna edit the list now.

Isn't it also interesting that only 19 cities have tasted Stanley Cup victory in its 110 year history?

Side note: I've apparently missed Victoria too, but I have absolutely no clue where it is.

Victoria is in the same province as Vancouver, BC.

It's on an island.

Its an interesting point, but for the most part teams from the North have been around longer. The Vancouver Millionaires won the cup in 1915. I think it is simply a byproduct of where hockey has existed the longest. It is likely that hockey will always be more popular farther north, but I think that the disparity here is more historical than anything else.

Yeah, I'm not sure if he was trying to prove anything with the post or just to inform.

*Ahem*

:p

1925 Stanley Cup Champions. Defeated Howie Morenz, Aurel Joliat and the Montreal Canadiens at the Oak Bay arena (since burned down) across the street from my high school.

Victoria, British Columbia is on the southernmost tip of Vancouver Island, an hour and a half ferry ride off the coast of Vancouver and the lower mainland. It is a city of 300,000 people and was home to the junior career of hall of famer Grant Fuhr.

Granted they are in the same geographic area as NY, NY , but what about Uniondale, NY (Long Island)

When you live in Philadelphia, you tend not to see knowing the capital of British Columbia as your #1 priority in life.

And yet off the top of my head I know that Harrisburg is the capital of Pennsylvania.



Never mind me, I'm not normal. For some reason I know all the US capital cities. I learned them when I was little and they've stuck with me.

Most Americans don't even know state capitals, heh....especially considering most of the state capitals are in the middle of no where and have absolutely no relevance when it comes to population size or location.

I've decided to quickly re-do the list. Instead of using latitudes, I've decided to actually use temperature since I think it's a better measure to use. Each city now has the average temperature in January, listed in order from coldest to warmest:


1) Winnipeg, MB: -1.6F
2) Edmonton, AB: 7.3F
3) Quebec City, PQ: 10.4F
4) Ottawa, ON: 12.2F
5) Calgary, AB: 14.0F
6) Montreal, PQ: 14.5
7) Toronto, ON: 23.2F
8) Chicago, IL: 24.8F
9) Detroit, MI: 25.3F
10) Boston, MA: 28.0F
11) Denver, CO: 30.2
12) Pittsburgh, PA: 30.9F
13) New York, NY: 31.3F
14) East Rutherford, NJ: 31.5F
15) Philadelphia, PA: 32.0F
16) Vancouver, BC: 37.0F
17) Victoria, BC: 37.6F
18) Seattle, WA: 40.1
19) Dallas, TX: 44.8F

So, the Stanley Cup has only been won in temperate cities so far. I guess LA came the closest to winning outside the temperate zone?

I remember it snowed this year around the time the ESPN crew were in Dallas (Thorne and Clement), and they couldn't stop talking about it.

I guess a lot of people don't realize North Texas is still pretty temperate.

You don't know where Victoria is?! Good Grief man, so it's true what they say. Anyways, interesting thread. I like seeing Seattle up there. I wish they had a team.

Ah... good point. I guess Anaheim qualifies as a different city from LA. Very close for them.

Well, it's like comparing the distance from the Rangers to the Devils. They're extremely close, but generally not associated with being the same exact area.
